Repairing a hole or crack in a metal object.
There are two methods: 1) A crack in a metal statue or vessel is filled by pouring melted metal directly into the crack. 2) In ancient bronze statues, where there was a hole in the statue, a mould was made conforming to the shape of the hole, and a new piece was cast and fitted to fill the hole. Both methods are known as ikake. There are many examples of statues repaired using ikake, including the Shaka sansonzou Žß‰ÞŽO‘¸‘œ in Houryuuji –@—²Ž›, Nara.
